Why do we call it BlueHouse Garden?
We were house hunting and had looked at 3 or 4 promising properties. We asked the boy child which one he liked best. He was 4 at the time. His favorite house was the blue house. We had no clue what he was talking about. None of the houses were blue. I did not recall anything significant about the places that was blue. I took it as a 4-year-old moment and forgot about it.
After we had looked and schemed and dreamed and planned I went back to have a final look at a house with which I was smitten. I was there with the kids. I turned to the boy child and asked if he thought we should buy this house. He said, “Yes, this is the blue house.”
I relayed this information to my husband and we decided that we had to call it the blue house.
There you have it. Our house was named on a 4-year-old’s whim. We are still uncertain what made him call it the blue house. At the time the house was not blue – it is now. After storm damage we were able to put on new siding which of course had to be blue.
